Congrats to Rick Adelman. 8 seasons, 8 playoff appearances.The last Kings coach to have a system. Even though Joe Maloof claimed that Adelman couldn’t create a system after they parted ways.

To be fair, Joe Maloof's biggest intellectual contribution to the world was the idea to sell vodka flavored like red velvet cake, so perhaps his judgment on more subtle matters should be discounted out of hand.

Four if you count Bill Russell getting in as a coach. (though I doubt Bill even remembers coaching here)
I do, unfortunately. I was a Junior in HS.

He didn't last 1 full season, so that's probably why he and many others old enough to remember don't.

Too bad he wasn't still able to lace 'em up as a player coach back then. ;)
